HOLLYWOOD – The world is starting to take notice of Hollywood’s rising stars of theatrical dark rock, Black Veil Brides. Currently on a headlining tour, with their debut full-length record set to be released in the coming weeks, the emerging Black Veil Brides are featured in the July 10th issue (# 27) of Billboard Magazine. Vocalist, Andy Six, and BVB manager, Blasko, recently spoke with the industry’s largest trade magazine about their overwhelming success over the past year, including millions of YouTube hits, and tens-of-thousands of merch sales in Hot Topic stores nationwide.

Black Veil Brides are currently on the road, headlining the Hot Topic Presents: The Sacred Ceremony tour, which kicked off last week in San Diego on July 2nd. The month-and-a-half long trek will take the band across North America and back, as they tour in support of their debut album, We Stitch These Wounds, which hits stores on July 20th on Standby Records. Vampires Everywhere!, Get Scared, and Modern Day Escape will round out the tour’s impressive package.
Black Veil Brides have also posted the brand new single off We Stitch These Wounds, “Perfect Weapon”, for streaming on their official MySpace page at: www.myspace.com/blackveilbrides. The music video for “Perfect Weapon”, which has been viewed more than 500,000 times on YouTube since it debuted on June 15th, can be seen at: www.youtube.com/blackveilbridestv.
“Perfect Weapon” is currently available for download through iTunes at: itunes.apple.com/us/album/perfect-weapon/id374387530?i=374387830&ign-mpt=uo%3D4, where it easily cracked the Top 50 on the site’s “Rock” chart when it debuted on June 8th.
Fans can pre-order the full-length debut, We Stitch These Wounds, at: www.districtlines.com/black-veil-brides.
Delivering songs with lyrics of hope and strength, accompanied by passionate, hook-laden instrumentals, Black Veil Brides took the rock world by the throat with their first single/video, “Knives and Pens” in the summer of 2009. The video has since been viewed more than 12 million times on YouTube, and can be seen at: youtube.com/watch?v=gFDCHdKbKBY.
With a thriving and dedicated following of fans, and a highly trafficked MySpace profile (averaging over 10,000 plays a day, peaking in the 9th spot on MySpace’s Top Music Charts in the ‘Metal’ category), Black Veil Brides stand out as LA’s lone breath of fresh air.
